This has been a problem with gnome since 1.4.  I should also point out
that in my experience, esound works correctly as long as no one runs
gnome on the console.  As long as all users are on X-terminals, everything
just works.  This is the case at my office.  At home, however, we can't
afford the luxury of leaving the console unused.  So my wife and daughters
are constantly IMing me to "please kill the sound daemon".
